Yummy and the easiest fresh berry relish I could find. I added chopped apples, and next time I will add raisins also during bake time!!!

I've used a recipe similar to's mine. All I add to the cranberries is the sugar and a half cup of brandy (or more if desired) then bake as posted.

This recipe is so easy and is delicious ~ and I learned it is very important to COVER the baking dish! :) For Christmas 2009, I made the recipe again with the added one teaspoon orange oil, and 1 1/4 cups brown sugar (not packed tight) ~ I forgot to cover the dish while baking, which resulted in less sauce, and the cranberries were more candied ~ I added the toasted walnuts and orange marmalade, and the juice of one large lemon. * * * * * First review: For Thanksgiving 2009, I made this per the recipe, but added one teaspoon orange oil to the cranberries before baking ~ it was delicious, but a little too sweet!
